Before you go out shopping for a new or used car, you need to know how much you can afford. When determining your budget for a car you want to spend no more than 25% of your monthly income on ALL of the cars in your house. This amount not only includes car payments, but insurance, gas, and maintenance costs as well. Simple budgeting will help you figure out exactly what you can afford.
Each option has its own set of pros and cons. Buying the car means you will eventually own the car outright, while leasing it means you won’t. When leasing a car, you must pay special attention to the terms of the lease to ensure you aren’t hit with any financial penalties at the end of the lease. Buying a used car is cheaper than buying a new car, but you don’t always know the history of the vehicle. If you don’t want to buy new and are afraid of buying used your other option is a certified pre-owned car.
Do you want to buy or do you want to lease? Knowing the answer to that question is important to know as you head into the dealership, that way you can know exactly what you are looking for and what terms interest you. The finance departments at Irvine Auto Center dealerships will be able to help you navigate through all the financing, so you don’t have to worry about that!
